Make a gift to an area you care about
You can choose where you want your donation to go. Your gift will directly support your chosen field of research, education or activities.
Societal stability via mediation
Mediation is a significant social method for finding a peaceful way out of conflicts. Finland has extensive expertise in different areas of mediation, but there is a great need for a holistic approach to bring different fields together. We are establishing Finland’s first multidisciplinary mediation training module at Tampere University. By donating to mediation training, you are supporting societal stability.
Accessibility promotes equality
Accessibility enables the equal participation of people in different sectors of society regardless of their functional ability. The realisation of accessibility in society requires multidisciplinary research and increased research-based education in the field. Tampere University’s multidisciplinary education and research hub on accessibility TACCU has made groundbreaking contributions to the development of accessible education.
Equal opportunity to learn
Children’s and young people’s opportunities for learning and success are important both to them and to the future of entire societies. With competence in special education pedagogy, we are enabling the equal learning of all kinds of learners. By donating, you enable the implementation of high-quality research and education in special education pedagogy in Tampere.
Well-being by sustainable construction
The built environment has a crucial impact on people’s well-being and safety, the social and economic functioning of society, and climate and nature. We are developing construction solutions that are better for people and the environment. By donating, you directly contribute to building a more sustainable world.
Support biodiversity education
Education in biodiversity increases people’s understanding of biodiversity and the significance of viable nature for prosperous societies and the planet. There is a great need for research and education in the field in Finland and internationally. At Tampere University, we foster the environmental relationship of future generations through research-based education.
Robotics enhances safety
The health and safety of people working in hazardous and strenuous working environments can be significantly improved by robotics. New technologies also reduce the environmental impact of different sectors. There is a shortage of robotics experts, meaning that investing in education is important. By donating, you will enable the significant development of autonomous robotics expertise both locally and globally.
Research on circular economy
Due to climate change and the depletion of natural resources, companies, cities and citizens must adopt circular economy solutions and operating models. The ManCe Research Centre for Circular Economy Management conducts pioneering research on circular economy. Your donation will support the development of more sustainable societies.
Gamification – a field of the future
We want to find solutions to global challenges – such as climate change, inequality and ageing populations – through gamification. Tampere University has a real opportunity to become a leading international knowledge hub and trendsetter in gamification. By donating, you are helping to utilise gamification in different sectors of society.
New treatments for celiac disease
Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition that can develop at any age. At present, the only treatment for celiac disease is a completely gluten-free diet. The CeliRes research centre is Finland’s largest hub for research in celiac disease and conducts leading-edge multidisciplinary studies. By donating to celiac research, you are helping to develop diagnostics and treatment options.
Enabling healthier childhood
The foundations of lifelong health and well-being are built in the first years of life. The TamCAM research centre conducts multidisciplinary research to support the formation of health-promoting lifestyles already during pregnancy and childhood. By donating, you are supporting research that helps to improve the health of children, young people and mothers globally.
Leveraging research results
Putting scientific research and research results into practice is an important part of the University’s societal impact. We support the commercial and non-commercial utilisation and dissemination of research results and solutions across society. By donating, you help us to translate research findings into practical solutions for people and society.
Children’s science education
Juniversity is a university for children and young people and an expert in research and science education at Tampere University. By donating to Juniversity, you are helping to provide equal opportunities to children and young people to get excited about research and science and find their own study paths.
Other ways to support research and education
